Sidmouth College pupils pushed themselves to the limit at the weekend to conquer the Ten Tors.

Four teams of students set off across Dartmoor’s toughest terrain to tackle either the 35-, 45-, or 55-mile course.

It is the first time since 2002 that the school has entered a team for all three challenges.

All of the teams crossed the line before 5pm on the final day, completing the course in 11 hours 44 minutes (45-mile team), 12 hours 20 minutes (35B-team), 13 hours 15 minutes (35A-team) and 16 hours 30 minutes (55-mile team).

College principal James Ingham-Hill said: “We are extremely proud of the students that have worked for months training for this event. It takes a huge amount of commitment, courage and resilience to complete the challenge and they all did fantastically well. They are all a credit to the College.”
